  • It was the first Winery we visited in Chile and we like a lot. She is the closest to Santiago and can be accessed through the 4 line (blue) of the subway, descending Quilín station and making out after a Uber or taxi (you can also catch a bus) to the winery. We did the traditional tasting tour (14,000 pesos), which lasts approximately 1 hour and 10 minutes, and includes 4 wines at the end (the other wineries offer only 3 wines in most basic package). You get the ' present '. The winery Cousiño Macul is Chile's oldest and has been in existence since 1,854. The tour passes through vineyards, then goes to the Giants and old oak casks, passing through the current stainless steel barrels, where it is explained how the wine is produced nowadays, passes by (or casillero) and 225-litre barrels in the underground part and ends in a small at the Museum where he allows one to meet equipment that were used in the production of the wine before it was modernized. Interesting to see how they were bottled wines and how they were glued labels. The vineyards of this winery produces wine auction, the most exclusive of Cousiño Macul (award-winning wine). «Mass» wines are produced in viña of Buin, South of the Valley of the Maipo. Negative point that no restaurant in viña (there was only one food truck parked, when we went, it was closed). Valley by history and by the pleasant walk, in addition to the 4 wines tasting at the end. Recommend doing light clothes for the visit of the vineyards (too hot in the summer), but it's good to have a sweater for the underground part of the bodega (cold). Difficult movement with strollers (I recommend leaving it at a reception during the tour).

  • It is a good site near Santiago to have close experience of a vineyard. I recommend it for travelers that they want a short visit and have no time to visit other more far.

  • We arrived after visiting hours and we had the pleasant surprise of being well received by James Reis, who explained, with patience, our doubts. Told us a little of the history of the winery, always explaining each wine approached. We enjoyed a delicious bottle of white wine and buy great wines!

  • Well maintained vineyard. Personnel has a good knowledge of the wine. Rich history. Good wines.
  • Really good maintained old vineyard with a great history. The tour was fair priced and interesting. I can also recommend the wine!
  • Nicely maintained vineyard and knowledgeable staff! There are several types of tours (website has incorrect pricing) - normal tour lasts around 50 minutes and costs 15000 pesos (tasting of 4 wines included, but without their signature Lota assemblage). Tours should be pre-booked on their website. There's a wine store with good prices (compared to retail). Can definitely recommend!
  • The website says they have tours everyday at different times, we came a Saturday afternoon and they're just open till noon... I hope they fixed in their website. It's a little bit far just to come for nothing, but we came and with a lot of luck they received us anyway made an exception for us and gave us a last minute tour! It was great! The guide Anibal made an excellent job! Great experience! Thank you so much!
  • Great wine tour and tasty wines! Please try the Lota. Amazing Cab!
